“Spirit of Late Marriage I REJECT in Jesus Name!” Watch ‘Mrs. Somebody’ Starring Uche Jombo and Michael “Bobby” Obodo

Hey guys, how is everyone doing this Sunday? So, check this out. There was a video clip I shared on AML a little while back which was an interview by one of the prominent news platforms with Jason Njoku of IROKO TV. During the interview, the host asked Jason for a recommendation of a good Nollywood movie to watch. He said he would recommend ‘Mrs. Somebody.’ I was yet to see the movie so I made a note to do so at some point. I finally got a chance to see it this weekend.

Actually, I watched it on the IROKO TV platform. I had not watched a movie on IROKO since the early days it launched. Back then, the user experience was awful and I simply did not have that kind of time. Fast forward to yesterday when I watched the aforementioned movie on the platform. This time, I had a much better user experience. I had the option to skip the ads, which I did, the overall aesthetics and function of the site appealed to me; and as the movie progressed, the interruptions with ads decreased significantly.

Mrs Somebody Uche JomboThe movie ‘Mrs. Somebody’ was funny. I really did not realize how much of a big deal this whole marriage thing is and I am really fascinated by the pains many Nigerian women go to, to be married. As I have shared on AML, I certainly do not share that kind of background, even though I am of Nigerian heritage. In any event, it is a funny movie worth watching and a line that had me cracking up so hard was when Uche Jombo’s character says, “spirit of late marriage, I reject in Jesus name.” Hahahahahaha. She also does a lot of “rebuking” “with the blood of Jesus.” Looooool! Hilarious all around. By the way, a glimpse of some of the things you see in the movie is found in the funny video clip I recently saw on Bella Naija.

Finally, the Nigerian-Canadian/American guy Michael Bobby Obodo,a love interest for Uche’s character, represented well. I appreciated his acting.
